The standards provided by HL7 concentrate on the application layer, “layer 7” in the Open Systems Interconnection model (OSI model). This allows healthcare organizations to seamlessly share health information.
HL7 integration is needed for merging and connecting data from isolated pools of different medical systems. HL7 is a vast ocean full of abilities to expand healthcare interoperability in a very standardized way. Today, we concentrate on the two approaches by which HL7 integration can be done in a trouble-less manner.
An economically available HL7 interface engine arranged in the cloud can be used. It connects with the EMR system of every hospital area. The following are the commonly used HL7 interface engines;
Among the above, Infor Cloverleaf has been the most commonly used interface engine by many hotshot companies in the US healthcare industry. Its per-interface pricing model is way too expensive but it provides long-term stability, scalability, and reliability.
The best open-source variant available is Mirth Connect. Yet, it requires a commercial license for its advanced plug-ins and technical support. It also may need us to use more than one of its plug-ins to increase the speed of development.
HL7 APIs can be used on our own to put in place a service that will connect with the EMR system of every hospital area. This light service will be installed and run on a local on-premise system. Then this would sift and send the needed data to us.
Not all HL7 messages will be needed to be processed and transformed. These messages may include the below given HL7 messages;
It will be easier to implement a custom background service that uses an HL7 API instead of a complete HL7 engine.
